Janie's boat was parked at sea, on a little island in the middle of an ocean.

She wanted to be alone.  Alone was easy and safe and it would allow her to heal.  Not sure how much time had passed, the time traveler didn't really care.  She could explain it to her friends when she was ready.  Whenever that would be. 

The island was rocky and not really capable of supporting much life.  Janie still sat on the beach, mostly out of habit.  It didn't feel right anymore, not after what happened with Robert.  She sighed, and tossed a rock at the sea.

After handing over the antitoxin to Richard, Phoenix is quick to try and track Janie down.

Unfinished business.

First he locates the boat, appearing on the island via his temporal device. The angel wanders along the shore for a while, until he finds Janie sitting on the beach.

He'd asked the Office to send him to the boat. Fortunately they had been feeling generous, so he was able to track it on his temporal device.

"Hey, sweetheart." He sits beside her. "Sure, thanks... Are you sick?"

Either she's denying it, or she doesn't know. And knowing Janie as he does, Phoenix suspects it's stubborn denial.

"Here..." He rummages for the other six vials of antitoxin he kept for himself and Janie. Then hands one of the vials to her. "Ylaia had her laboratory manufacture this some time ago. The Hell war wiped out the lab, but the vault was intact... I think we both know you could use some."

He's calm, and seems very far from his old belligerent self.

"It's okay, honey. You don't have to answer to me."

"Vahl found out. Raissa doesn't know he's .." Phoenix doesn't want to say 'changed'. Vahl had never been a bastard to begin with, it's unfair.

"Innocent. She showed him where she locked you up, and he was able to get some information out of her mind."

"Vahl tells me Richard's got her locked up" He says this without one iota of jealousy over Richard in his soul. "He's a keeper."

Phoenix actually feels sad that Richard is mortal, and that somewhere along the way - he won't be with Janie any more.

"Richard has six doses. You have one. I have five... but you can have more of mine if you want. Richard and Vahl are working separately on getting it duplicated, in case we need a supply."

This pleases Phoenix no end. "Nice one. I'll let Vahl and Richard know we have a source... I won't tell Richard it's you."

"I don't even know if I'm supposed to tell you about what's going on... oh, sure, here.." He stands and offers her a hand up.

Phoenix supports her carefully as they walk.

"Gods honey, you know you can always come to us. You don't have to face this crap alone."

His voice is non-judgemental. For once, Phoenix doesn't even feel cranky over Janie. Just... calm. Family.

"Rai's out of the way now," he tells her, unsure of how much she knows from her past, if she can't remember Richard.

We're working on the problem in your past, which is why I don't know how much to tell you."

From: [personal profile] ashes_ascended
"Probably for the best, Vahl and me have both been careful about getting in too deep, 'cause of that old timeline thing still going on... and... wait up. What do you mean you've been setting up baby-you to be happy and secure?"

All the time he's talking, Phoenix assists Janie onto the boat as much as she'll allow him.

"We noticed things had started changing for her, and couldn't explain it. Did you know she was shot?" Perhaps he shouldn't have said that, but something is wrong somewhere. It isn't often that Vahl worries.

Then another thought occurs. "That old friend, it wouldn't be Nina would it?

"Yeah. By Raissa. Vahl read in her mind that she's trying to wipe you out of the timelines."

"She's not in any trouble, honey. Apart from being put over my knee." Which was fun.

"Gods sweetheart." Phoenix reaches for Janie and pulls her into a hug, gently, mindful that she's fragile. "Rai's out of the picture now. Locked up. It'll be okay."

"Don't be. It's okay. I know it's hard for you, and I haven't made it any easier over the centuries." He holds her, smelling that familiar and beautiful scent of her hair.

"Let me get this antitoxin inside you. Okay?"

Phoenix was handling medical equipment from an early age, helping Ylaia in her treatment centres. He's also used to administering first aid - or divine healing - in the field. He takes a few minutes to prep a hypodermic. The dosage in the vial is exactly enough for a person of Janie's weight and size, Ylaia wanted no errors.

"Give me your arm?"

From: [personal profile] ashes_ascended
Wrapping the tourniquet around her arm, Phoenix swabs the skin with anti-bac solution, and very carefully uses the hypo to inject the antitoxin. He's always been very gentle doing this, and even as a youngster, mortal people preferred him doing it because of what they called his 'angelic touch'.

"Okay." He places a cotton ball over the puncture. "You know the drill bend you arm and keep it that way for a minute or so."

"Nothing but the best dope from your friendly neighbourhood dealer." He's pleased to see her improve so quickly, and spends another few minutes tidying up after himself.

"I think that would be safest," he has to agree, but he knows Janie can be damned stubborn.

"We'll try to handle anything else that comes up, Vahl and me, but now Raissa's out of the way, things should settle down."

He can relate to Lynn's need for privacy. Phoenix and Vahl have spent the last ten years locking themselves away from everything in La'Zralae.

"Give them both my love, yeah?"

From: [personal profile] ashes_ascended
Since Sam set up with Spectra and Stefano, and the child came along, and then Lynn forming her pack, Phoenix has missed being such a vital person in his children's lives.

At the same time, he's immensely proud and happy for both Sam and Lynn.

"I'll be a grandfather." He frowns slightly. "I mean Therese is obviously Stefano's, but if they manage it.. this will be Lynn's. I feel old."

Spectra and Stefano named their little girl Therese, after one of Stefano's long dead little sisters.

"I hope so. I never knew I'd be given Sam. Alec and I adopted mortal kids over the centuries, but, well, you probably know how much that hurts."

Having Lynn as a child had been a little scary at first, until Phoenix had realised she was immortal. "I was so happy when Lynn turned out to be mine."

"You think?" He gives her the Kaelen eyebrow, but his eyes are twinkling.

"It's gonna be fun. I hope they can find a workaround."

"Gods help you both," he grins. Phoenix always loves it when she laughs.

He wonders if they're both skirting around the issue of the Beast a bit, but surely it's a being so unique, it won't repeat? Unless it wants baby beasts. The angel shudders. "It was like that for Spectra and Stefano. Wraith and vampires hadn't bred much when they got together, Stefano didn't want Therese to be born vampire. Lucky she takes after her mother."

"Maybe she will. I mean she must see Lynn as one of her own... but it might be a long time coming." As Sam had been.

He laughs at the stork. "There must be a universe where that's possible."
